SanDisk Sansa review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Friday 19th, September 2008

The SanDisk Sansa series seems to have appeared out of nothing, yet set the world on fire and not without success; SanDisk now occupy the second spot on the American market. The Sansa e200 series is SanDisk's compact MP3 player line, and is ready to battle it out with, among others, the iPod. Thanks to the 8GB internal memory, which can even be enhanced, a large sized 1.8 inch TFT monitor and an exchangeable battery, the SanDisk Sansa e280 seems to keep pace with its rivals. The MP3 player features a photo viewer and video viewer. To view pictures, you can choose between a photo frame and a miniature picture; in fact, it is quite obvious; thumbnails or text. You can also opt for a slide show.

Apple iPhone lithium-ion battery

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Tuesday 7th, August 2007

Electric car pioneer ZAP says its iZAP battery designed for the Apple iPod is more useful for the energy intensive Apple iPhone. "The iZAP battery was a life-saver during my business trip to China last week," said Apple iPhone owner Steve Schneider, Chief Executive Officer for ZAP. "Frankly, if an Apple iPod runs out of power, losing your music and photo or video is not as critical to your business trip as the Apple iPhone. You lose your cell phone access, text messages, Internet and email access, time zone clock, business notes, scheduling software, driving maps, calculator and all the other news and information for which the Apple iPhone was designed."
